The Joy of Holiday Writing: Journals, Cards, Letters

I love this time of year. I look forward to relishing the time I take to write Christmas cards and letters to friends near and far. It's also a wonderful time to write down all of those customs and traditions that make your family your family. Keeping a journal is a priceless way to record your family memories.

I explore the joy of writing such notes, cards and journals in my latest blog for Hooker Furniture. I hope it inspires you in your own creative writing as you enjoy your time with family friends.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,


  1. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, do you think you could e-mail me?


  2. I just found your blog and am delighted beyond measure!! I have been reading Victoria since I was a girl. A subscription was my birthday present from my parents every year. :-) I collected every issue and read it from back to front over and over, memorizing the names of writers and photographers until they were like old friends. :-) As a teenager my life turned upside down after a series of traumatic events hit. It got worse and worse yet through it all, your magazine was there to comfort and restore my soul. I was so sad when you were no longer the editor. The comfort of your work was missing in the new. In 2011 I was able to find the courage to start my life over. I moved to Europe, then Australia, and now have a most beloved life with my dear man, a farm full of goats, and a career as a freelance writer and photographer. I always wondered what happened to you, hoping your life was rich and beautiful. :-) Phew. Sorry for such a long response, but it did my heart much good to see you here today. :-) Wishing you much happiness in the year to come. xo

    1. I am delighted that you have not only a year but a fulfilling life and career to look forward to. If Victoria had a speck to do with it, that is most rewarding to hear. But I suspect that it is what is within you that is the true story.

      Don't be said about my not being the editor. I had a lovely run and left which I believe to be a good body of work. And I continue to keep my hand in, so to speak.

      My very best to you. Nancy
